The CoulSouls X bird. F/W 2020 collection features custom prints and patterns playfully addressing the otherwise dark emotions following the Covid-19 pandemic breakout, 2020 public protests, and looming environmental crisis. Nikoleta Dzharova is the creative behind CoolSouls - a woman run, sustainable, clothing brand based in Bulgaria. The collection is based on a collaborative art direction, hand-sown clothing by Nikoleta, and designs elements by bird. (me) - printed at NoPoint Atelier- a silkscreen and risograph printing studio in the heart of Bulgaria.
The global pandemic has shaken our world. Artists struggle to make sense of a new era in which art can not exist in confined physical spaces, limiting its access to oversaturated online medias. We ask each other "Is it time to panic?". We use our bodies as a medium, a walking installation to address this dooms day mentality, and free our minds from the weight of the world. We bridge communities across the globe, through poetry, satire, and own able design.
